A fine Cello Concerto
Elgar's Cello Concerto is a work of haunting musical beauty, and from the technical and interpretative points of view one of the finest, if not the finest, that has been written for this much-neglected instrument. It was written at the end of the period that Elgar spent at Brinkwells, Fittleworth, in Sussex, and was actually the last big work that he completed, although he lived another fifteen years. This Concerto was first played by Felix Salmond with the London Symphony Orchestra, conducted bv Sir Edward Elgar , at Queen's Hall on October 27, 1919.
Brahms's Variations on a Theme by Haydn is one of the greatest works of its kind, showing a sense of beauty and proportion and an ingenuity of treatment that remain as fresh and expressive today as when it was first performed in 1873. The climax of the work is the finale, which is a magnificent passacaglia, the ground or repeated bass of which is derived from the opening Haydn theme (the ' Chorale St. Antonii').
